Russia, Europe and the World in the Long Eighteenth Century

Fruit des travaux du Study Group on Eighteenth-Century. Russia, ce recueil de vingt contributions internationales renouvelle l’historiographie de l’Empire russe au cours du long XVIIIe siècle.

 

Le recueil offre un ensemble de vingt contributions consacrées à divers aspects de l’histoire politique, sociale, économique et culturelle de l’empire russe pendant le « long xviiie siècle » (1682-1825). Appuyées sur des sources inédites, elles portent une attention particulière à l’inscription du xviiie siècle russe dans le contexte d’une histoire globale, et favorisent les objets historiques contemporains comme la mémoire, la frontière ou le genre. Actualité oblige, le recueil pose la question de l’évolution du champ de recherche dans le contexte de l’invasion russe de l’Ukraine. Le volume s’adresse à tous les lecteurs intéressés par le xviiie siècle et l’histoire de la Russie à l’époque moderne.

This volume offers a selection of contributions to the tenth international conference of the Study Group on Eighteenth-Century Russia, held in 2018 at Strasbourg University, France, to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the Study Group’s founding. The papers published in this volume cover Russia’s “long eighteenth century”, from the reign of Peter I (1682-1725) to the reign of Alexander I (1801-1825). The eight main sections reflect the interdisciplinary approach of the Study Group. They focus on: the historiographical evolution of eighteenth-century Russian studies over the last fifty years; the practices of power by the Russian state; the geography of contacts and trade; the work of cultural brokers between Russia and Europe; the writing of subjectivity; gender in historical and literary context; literary practices and traditions; and the relationship between literature and power. The afterword is a retrospective of the Study Group’s history by its President, Professor Anthony G. Cross.
